Cons: DOA out of box. Poor customer service from OCZ. They don't support this product anymore since it is an old model. I submitting a ticket to get help on this unit (just needed some simple question answered) and still haven't heard anything back. The only help I have received was on the forums.
Other Thoughts: I would like a refund from newegg but this product is only available for replacement. The only reason I want a refund instead of a replacement is that OCZ doesn't support this item anymore. I will put in an rma for a replacement and hopefully it works. If the replacement works I guess that is okay. I don't think newegg should be selling a product (even refurbished) that is no longer supported by the manufacturer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is a fast router. I use it wireless with a dlink ac1200 usb adaptor about 100 feet away it still can pull down 430mbs. It does peak higher but it usually stays around 430. I also have a netgear n300 adaptor the same distance away in another room and it pulls 230mbs.
Cons: If my 1 wired computer is turned off it kill all connections to the internet. You have to unplug the ethernet cable then everything starts working. This has to be something with the firmware. I thought it was the secondary wan settings so I disable the secondary wan and I still have the same issue. You can log into the router from another machine and everything looks great. You can see the your isp ip, dns, and gateways. I also have an ethernet to powerline adaptor wired to the router and it works with my computer unplugged. All my drivers and firmware are the newest versions. That still didn't fix the issue. I also tried different ports still doesn't work if my computer is off. I haven't had time to talk to asus about this issue, but I'm going to post it on the forums to see if anybody else has this problem. If your wondering my motherboard is an Asus p6t deluxe w/Oc palm.
Other Thoughts: I have noticed that the wireless seems automatically lowers its send and receive power if its not being used. The routers range stays the same but wireless data rate will drop from 430mbs from about 100 feet away to 225mbs is you just let the computer set idle while not using the connection. Once you start using the connection it kicks back up to the 430mbs. Not sure why it would do this since the power saving features on the computer are disabled. I also didn't find any option in the router to change this.
I haven't tried the secondary wan settings, or the usb ports. I don't really see any need for the usb ports since I have a server that stores all my data and a wireless printer.
Pros: It can reach 1600 @ 8,8,8,24 timings but not really as stable as you would think.
Cons: Price at the time of purchase was 400 and less than a month later dropped to almost 1/2 of the cost.
Other Thoughts: When you load this ram by default it runs at 1066 and CAN be OC to run @ 1600, so if you want my opinion this is false advertisement. The ram should by default once installed load at 1600 as advertised. Note for the curious, I am running an ASUS P5E3 Delux mobo.READ FULL REVIEW
